Different types of Relaxers and chemicals used in the Hair Straightening/ Relaxing Treatment Process


The Hair Straightening/Relaxing Treatment is a type of treatment that uses chemicals such as Sodium, Lithium, and Guanidine Hydroxide to straighten your hair. The chemical components have pretty mild effects on the hair but it is very severe on the scalp.


The process of the Hair Straightening/ Relaxing Treatment is it reduces the curl by breaking down the hair strand and reforming the hair’s components by chemicals which softens very tight or kinky curls. The risk of doing the Hair Straightening is if done the wrong way could damage your scalp or burn your hair.

It is advisable to have the Keratin Hair Treatment done after the Hair Straightening Treatment so that you can treat your hair and give it a much healthier and straighter look, as well as combining both treatments can lengthen the duration of the treatment. As normally the Keratin lasts for 2-3 months and the Straightening lasts 6-8 weeks.
